The California Fuel Cell Partnership is a collaborative of organizations that are dedicated to advancing the market for hydrogen-powered fuel cell electric passenger cars, transit buses, trucks and other forms of transportation. CaFCP members identify and resolve challenges to market introduction and acceleration through regular communication, working jointly on tasks and projects, and sharing lessons learned.

All members have skin in the game with FCEVs or hydrogen stations, and all members actively participate in one or more teams to share non-proprietary information that helps move the market forward. Additionally, all members financially contribute to CaFCP annually.

    The 2022 CaFCP program plan is focused on:

    1. Decreasing the time and cost to build the current and future hydrogen station network
    2. Identifying challenges and solutions to completing the first 200 stations in California and deploying 1000 stations by 2030
    3. Developing and implementing the next steps in market commercialization in and beyond California
    4. Defining a path forward for CaFCP’s hydrogen station database software, the Station Operational Status System
    5. Sharing lessons learned and experience, nationally and internationally
    6. Leading outreach and education to the general public, AHJs, government, and NGOs
    7. Increasing the deployment of fuel cell buses in California’s transit agencies
    8. Advancing commercialization of fuel cell trucks
    9. Facilitating frank, open, and honest dialogue among CaFCP member organizations
